Vimeo user, Simon Shasha, was lucky enough to be chosen by Blackmagic to test their Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera before it hits the shelves. The video is beautifully shot and Simon, actually used two CAME-TV products to shoot the video - the CAME-Single and the new CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Cage plus a Lumix 12-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be portable and extremely steady due to the new encoder technology that has been implemented on the gimbal. It's completely tool-less, making it easy to balance and has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. Simon, was also kind enough to post some pictures of his setup with the CAME-Single and the BMMCC.
The newly designed CAME-TV BMMCC Cage is made to fit the new Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera perfectly. All the buttons on the BMMCC are all easily accessible and it comes with a 15mm rod system. Not only does it come with a solid top handle, but it also comes with a wooden side handle that makes it more comfortable to hold. Take a look at his setup with the CAME-TV BMMCC Cage.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and has a sleek/compact body, making it extremely easy to carry around and hold. It's designed for compact setups for cameras like the Panasonic GH-4, BMPCC, Sony A7S and other mirror-less type cameras. The custom molded carrying case that the Mini 2 comes in, provides protection when you need to take the gimbal with you to different locations.The horizontal crossbar on the Mini 2 holds the four rechargeable 18650 batteries that power the gimbal.
The new @cametv #Argo arrives. Well I have to admit that it works extremely well. Especially because it is using latest Basecam 32bit w/ Encoders. Lots of options like a dovetail quick release plate to mount the gimbal onto a jib, built-in wireless video transmitter, 15 mm rod to add your wireless follow focus , wireless joystick included, and a few other goodies. But how do you feel about the design choice lookin' like a DJI Ronin-M? #cametv #argo #gimbal.
Vimeo user, Liszön, recently used the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal to shoot a music video for the song "Little War" by the band Spy From Moscow. It was shot using two BMPCC cameras and he would switch between three different lenses. Liszon, states that his Mini 2 setup used solely a Samyang 12mm F2 lens with his BMPCC and for the other handheld shots he used a Tamron 17-50mm and a Sigma 30mm.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and gives the shooter three different profiles to use. Profile 1 - enables follow mode on the pan and tilt, Profile 2 - allows follow mode on the pan (not the tilt) and Profile 3 - disables follow mode on the pan and tilt. All of the wiring and electronics are all completely enclosed in the frame of the CAME-Mini 2, which will prevent any wires from getting in the way while the gimbal is in use.
Stein Olsen, posted this short test of his first try using the CAME-Single gimbal. It was shot in Norway and he used a Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35 f4 Lens.
The encoders on the CAME-Single increase the torque, stabilization and helps give the gimbal a longer battery life. The CAME-Single itself weighs about 1.2kg and can carry mirror-less cameras like the BMPCC, Sony A7S/A7R cameras and the Panasonic GH4. There are three different mounting points on the grip itself - (2) 1/4-20" and (1) 3/8". The mounting points will allow the shooter to mount a monitor, microphone, tripod stand or even attach the CAME-Single to a jib. The joystick is incredibly smooth to use, giving you the option to pan and tilt as you use the CAME-Single.
Andrew Gerard, posted this final scene from a short film he's been working on. The scene was filmed entirely with the CAME-Single gimbal and his Sony A7Rii with the Fe 28mm F2 lens!
The CAME-Single is one of the first basecam controlled gimbals that offer encoders. The encoders will prevent the motors from losing sync, increase torque/stabilization and decrease power consumption. The CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the Panasonic GH4, the Sony A7S series, A7RII and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema cameras. If you haven't scene Andrew Gerard last Came-Single video, watch it below!
After receiving his CAME-single, Andrew Gerard Media, went out and grabbed some quick test footage with his Sony A7Rii!
The CAME-Single gimbal is perfect for shooters who want a simple system thats easy to balance and provides steady footage. The encoders that are built into the brushless motors allow the CAME-Single to be extremely stable. The max payload that the CAME-Single can handle is about 2.6lbs(1.2kg), which is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the Sony A7S series, Panasonic GH4 and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.
Constructed out of wood and aluminum. The wood provides an attractive finish and is comfortable to grip providing a warmer surface than cold metal. There are many fastening holes in the top of the handle and there is a 15mm hole on the stem to mount a 15mm rod perpendicular which can provide additional mounting methods for accessories. The base of the handle is dovetailed which insures a secure and adjustable mount to the top plate.
Features two 15mm rod holes for expanding the system and is physically attached to the Sony FS5 via four mounting fasteners.
The heart of this kit is the base plate that features a quick release system to easily attach and detach the shoulder pad base. There are two 15mm rod holes that run through the base that allows front and/or back mounting of 15mm rods. This base incorporates two rosettes which allows for adding accessories. In addition there is a dovetailed tripod plate that provides quick and secure mounting to a tripod.
The CAME-7500 is the older version of what is now the CAME-7800 3-axis gimbal. The 7500 gimbal required users to build the gimbal and required tools to balance the camera on the carriage. Now, most of the gimbals that we offer are tool-less, pre-built and some even have encoders built into the motor (CAME-Single & CAME-Action). The CAME-7800 is a good gimbal for setups that might be too heavy for the CAME-Mini 2 or the CAME-Single. We have a variety of gimbal models that can hold small action cameras(CAME-Action) or bigger setups like a Blackmagic Cinema Camera(CAME-8000).
David Oastler, uploaded a video a few weeks ago that went over a majority of the details and specs of the CAME-Single gimbal. Recently, he shared this follow up video with us about using the CAME-Single on multiple wedding gigs he shot.
In the first half of the video, David Oastler gives a quick rundown of his personal experiences using the CAME-Single. In the second half of the video he provides some test footage from different weddings he shot where he used the CAME-Single to follow the bride and groom walking. The CAME-Single is great for cameras like the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s/A7rII and/or the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. If you haven't seen David Oastler's first video, make sure you check it out below!

Recently, Tom Antos, posted this detailed review of the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. He does state that he was using a Sony A7s with a big lens that might of exceeded the max payload the CAME-Single can handle, but it still worked well and gave him steady footage. In this video he demos the Single with a Sony NEX-5R.
Tom Antos, goes through great detail on what the CAME-Single comes with and how you would normally setup/balance it. The cool thing about the video is that he actually cuts in some "behind the scenes" footage of a recent shoot he worked on using the CAME-Single. The CAME-Single works great as a portable gimbal that you can easily bring around with you.
